Hurtin on the HP Laserjet 1018 Sub_title: spools job but no paper output
I ve down loaded every possible PET package related to hpljs hplis foomatic etc and installed. On ADMIN I see the precise HP LJ 1018 entry and it sets up perfectly per the dialogue. I try a test print and nothing happens except a print job number. In one of the folders I see all 34 or so back print jobs spooled. But somewhere something is missing.
